Default Super Sanctum TD - (By Coffee Stain Studios)

Quote:
Super Sanctum TD is a retro-styled mazing Defense game that focuses on strategy, customization and replayability. You construct mazes and towers to kill enemies and prevent them from reaching the Core. However, you donít have to just watch the towers do all the work, you can also use active abilities like Air Strike and Freeze to stun, snare, and destroy your enemies yourself too!

Strategy and skill are leading principles of Super Sanctum TD. Each level you complete will reward you Perk Points which you can use to specialize your towers and abilities to make them even more powerful!

* Carefully plan your towers and walls to master the game on all difficulties
* Towers like Gatling, Flamer, Lightning Tower, Mine Deployer, and more!
* Help your towers to kill stuff by using active abilities like Lightning Bolt, Smart Bomb and Gravity Shift!
* Vast Perk system that lets you specialize your towers and abilities!

Sanctum is a really great TD Game (with fps mixed in it) so I'm glad that we get a game from the series even if it's the simplest one. I've played a bit of Super Sanctum TD on PC (it was free if you preordered Sanctum 2) and I liked it!

4.49 Euros (So 4.99$?)

Here's a really quick rundown of the game:

- The game works like Sanctum, you first build slots then you place some turrets on them. At the start of every wave there's a build mode where you can build turrets and then you enter Wave mode in which ennemies are going through the map in order to destroy your core.

Pros:

-There are no iAP
-If you finish a mission you can replay it to get three stars or you can continue the very same map in survival mode. This is excellent for all the TD lovers out there that want to get "one more wave" with their current map.
-You can change the speed of the waves (1x, 2x)
-There are a lot of missions
-There's a huge progression tree

Cons:

-Musics and sounds are good but there are no SFX for the turrets.
-Graphics and animations aren't that great

Oh is it that Sanctum? I saw this on my usual sweep and was put off by the one screenshot and relatively high price but I'm definitely interested now! Cheers for pointing that out, looks like a good/expensive night for me

I love TD games and this one looks interesting, so I guess I'll have to pick it up tonight. I'm not familiar with Sanctum but it still looks good all the same.
